Depending on the circumstances, the statutory conditions under which a suspended sentence can be given to all or part of the sentence are as follows, and the period is specified within the range of 1 year to 5 years (Penal Code Article 25・ Article 27-2).

Elapsed grace period

If a suspended sentence is given for the entire sentence, the sentence will cease to be effective if the suspended sentence expires without the suspension being revoked (Criminal Code, Article 27, Paragraph 1).

"The sentence of a sentence loses its effect" means that the sentence of a sentence will no longer be effective in the future, and is also called legal reinstatement.Therefore, if the suspended sentence period elapses, it will fall under the category of "a person who has never been sentenced to imprisonment or more", so even if he commits a crime again, the suspended sentence will be based on Article 25, Paragraph 1, Item 1 of the Penal Code.

The suspended sentence is always revoked in the following cases (the necessary revocation of the full suspended sentence of the sentence is:Penal Code Article 26, See Article 27-4 of the Penal Code for the necessary cancellation of a suspended sentence for a part of the sentence).

  2. When a person is sentenced to imprisonment or more without a suspended sentence for a crime committed before the sentence of suspended sentence is finalized.
  3. When it is discovered that another offense has been sentenced to imprisonment or more before the grace sentence is finalized.However, this excludes those who fall under Article 25, Paragraph 1, Item 2 and those who fall under Article 26-2, Item 3.
